NFL teams reportedly share belief in Aaron Rodgers’ business value
Aaron Rodgers is still the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers right now, but everyone thinks it’s inevitable that he’ll go to the New York Jets via trade.
That’s what he wants, and the two teams just need to work out the terms of a trade, which will include a good draft fee.
Some think the Packers will demand at least a first-round pick in return, but some other NFL teams think all Rodgers is worth at this point is an inferior draft pick.

Rodgers is still a good quarterback, but his production took a hit last season when he turned 39.
He threw for 3,695 yards and 26 touchdowns while posting a 91.1 passer rating, somewhat lackluster numbers by his standards.
Remember, it was as recently as 2020 and 2021 that he won back-to-back league MVPs while leading the league in touchdown passes and completion percentage in 2020.
The question is whether his drop in production in 2022 was due to attrition or simply because he no longer had star receiver Davante Adams by his side.
If and when Rodgers makes it to New York, he’ll join a very interesting squad that has several young stars, such as reigning offensive rookie of the year wide receiver Garrett Wilson, and All-Pro cornerback Sauce Gardner. , which was named Defensive. Rookie of the year.
Additionally, the Jets recently added Allen Lazard, one of Green Bay’s top escapees in the past two years.
